Summer's True Nature.

[Smoke from the Woolundunga bushfire, between Quorn and Wilmington in the Flinders Ranges]

A busy couple days, some restless nights, and an even worse day expected tomorrow.

It probably comes as no surprise that we are keeping an eager eye on the weather.

The closest fire front is approximately 20km to the south at the moment, burning uncontrolled in harsh, inaccessible scrub of the Flinders. We have been lucky so far that it is keeping its distance.

The tiny town of Wilmington (40km south) is under the biggest threat from the fire.

  1. That's a big cloud of smoke! Hope you, SJ and Bailey-Dog stay safe :) And those people in Wilmington are safe too.

  2. Oh my that's a sight I would hate to see nearby.......

    Certainly hope it doesn't come any closer and burns itself out quickly...

    Do they know how it started?......

    I do hope tomorrow isn't too hot.

  3. Hope you are getting the rain up there Sarah, that should put the fires out, thank goodness. Love Shane's photos :)
